Is there any way to disable seeing your friends come on and off line while watching netflix? They briefly pop up in the upper right hand corner while watching a movie. Not a huge deal, but kinda annoying / distracting.

What device are you using to watch Netflix? Between my TV, Roku, AppleTV, and laptop I've never seen this "feature" once.

You could always create a new PS3 user + PSN account, don't add any friends to it, and log into that whenever you watch Netflix.

Turn off friends notifications before launching the Netflix app.

Just so you're aware, that will also disable the popups telling you when friends send messages.

No problem.

p.s. Have you ever purified yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka?

Is the pope catholic? I live about 2 miles from the lake. Great fishing lake too! Just don't go out on the weekends, unless you are single. Crazy busy!
